The February 2006 Asian Aerospace show at Singapore’s Changi Airport will be the last event in its current format, following a sudden split between the Singapore government and show organizer Reed Exhibitions. Singapore authorities have decided to run their own biennial air show starting February 2008. UK-based Reed is now considering alternative venues outside Singapore to stage future Asian Aerospace events. The Singapore government insists that the new Changi International Airshow will be held in the traditional slot of February in even-numbered years, but it is hard to see how two Asian shows could be held during the same period. Despite their falling out, both Reed and the Singapore government have insisted that they will still cooperate with each other in the running of the 2006 Asian Aerospace show.
